    It involves mostly just fetching a web page, parsing it, finding the address of what you want to click, fetch that URL and so on.
    The problem lies in the parsing. No language is going to make that easier.

    Every language can make it easier. The only thing you need is an SGML parser, of which implementations can be found or written for any language people use today, I presume.

    That doesn't change the fact that you still have to do parsing, albeit at a higher level.
    You still have to search for the appropriate links or interpret how the page looks in order to find the right information.

    I'm not trying to change the fact that you have to do the parsing by pointing out that there are libraries with parsers available for programmers to use. A parser built for a particular kind of document should make it easier to decompose that document if it dares to call itself a parser.
